Award honors the memory of Dolores J. Brown

This award was established to honor the memory of Dolores J. Brown for all she contributed to the School in her role as assistant to Dean Daniel C. Tosteson from 1985 until 1997, and Dean Emeritus from 1997 until 2000.

The Brown Family established this award in 2001 to recognize an exceptional staff member in HMS or HSDM who embodies the same spirit and commitment that Dolores had for her work at the School.  An ad hoc committee will review nominations and select the recipient.

 Award Criteria:

  • Has a record of outstanding service to his or her position, to the School, and to his or her colleagues;
  • Has demonstrated respect for the School and its mission;
  • Helps create a welcoming, friendly and inclusive environment.

Performance Management Reminders

ePerformance is LIVE!  The best way to prepare for meaningful Assessment conversations in the spring is to invest in clear goal-setting now.  The deadline for completing FY15 Goals is September 30th.

 

Departments using the ePerformance Standard From can enter goals directly into PeopleSoft.

 

Departments using the ePerformance Summary and Exception Forms can capture goals on the "Planning/Goal Setting Form" found here.

 

ePerformance training and resource information can be found here.

 

For departments in the process of completing FY14 PPR Assessments, the deadline for completion/submission was August 31st.  While we have several departments with a 100% completion rate, the overall HMS completion rate for FY14 is hovering around 60%.  Please finalize and submit your completed FY14 PPR Assessment documents at your earliest convenience.

 

If you have questions about Performance Management, please contact Linda Miklas (2.7674; linda_miklas@hms.harvard.edu) or Jennifer Galbraith Ryan (2.3501; jennifer_ryan@hms.harvard.edu).
